Our marketing team is growing and we're looking for a Content Marketing Writer to join our pack.
This position is best suited for a skilled writer and storyteller, experienced in SaaS and/or video industry with a strong sense of strategic direction. This is a fast-growing market, so the trends are quick to shift and we need to be able to confidently refocus when needed.
We need someone ready to start contributing without a steep learning curve. Content writing is at the core of this position, so a love for writing is an absolute must. You have to be, what we like to call, a Sponge Writer , which is someone who can write in many different styles and voices as needed. Someone who is an intuitive communicator and is able to read the room when it comes to writing for our audience.
The right person will help us execute our content strategy by supporting our Content Marketing Lead's everyday tasks: from content planning to publishing and everything in between.
Our team is incredibly passionate, smart, supportive, skilled, open to learning, and growth-oriented. We're happy to take constructive criticism and use it to level up. We're looking for someone who can match that energy and help us scale.
About The Role:
This person will support our existing Content Marketing Lead by splitting the workload and expediting delivery, focusing roughly 70% of the time on creating various pieces of content, from blog articles and video scripts, to ebooks and downloadables. The remaining 30% will be split between managing and editing contributing articles, with a small piece allocated for some miscellaneous tasks and team meetings.
